Dan Guerrero Joins College Basketball Partnership

May. 2, 2005

UCLA director of athletics Daniel G. Guerrero has accepted an invitation to join the "College Basketball Partnership," a group formed last year to improve and promote the game of college basketball. The invitation was issued by NCAA President Myles Brand.

By accepting the invitation, Guerrero will be participating in a group consisting of some of the most influential people in the game of college basketball. It includes persons directly involved in college basketball, such as coaches, directors of athletics, league commissioners, NCAA staff, television analysts and executives and sports business executives.

Brand announced the formation of the College Basketball Partnership at a press conference at New York's Madison Square Garden last December. He called the partnership "an action-oriented group" whose dramatic effects will be realized over the next year or two.

"We needed to make this group public," he said at the December press conference. "We've been working behind the scenes for several months. People need to know that we're there as a team. This team is going to make a difference.

"I want to stress that this group has not been convened because we think our game is in some way broken -- although we certainly recognize that there are aspects of the game that are not what we would want them to be right now," Brand said. "Rather, we think that we can better protect and grow college basketball in the future by having all those involved work together to plan that future."

Guerrero joins an illustrious group that includes Brand, NCAA president; Michael Aresco, senior vice president for programming, CBS Sports; Jim Boeheim, Hall of Fame basketball coach, Syracuse University; Bob Bowlsby, Iowa athletic director and head of the NCAA Division I men's basketball committee; Jim Delany, commissioner of the Big Ten; Len Elmore, lawyer and television analyst; Jim Haney, executive director of the National Association of Basketball Coaches; Tom Izzo, basketball coach, Michigan State; Tom Jernstedt, NCAA executive vice president; Clark Kellogg, CBS sports analyst; Mike Krzyzewski, basketball coach, Duke; Billy Packer, CBS sports analyst; Greg Shaheen, NCAA vice president for men's basketball and championship strategies; Kevin Weiberg, commissioner of the Big 12; and John Wildhack, senior vice president, ESPN.
